The Dead Zone is a horror/supernatural thriller novel by Stephen King published in 1979. It is his seventh novel and the fifth novel under his own name. It concerns Johnny Smith, who is injured in an accident and remains in a coma for nearly five years. Upon emergence, he exhibits clairvoyance and precognition with limitations, apparently because of a "dead zone," an area of his brain that suffered permanent damage as the result of his accident.
An unusual novel for King, this is a slow-burn thriller that sees 'genre' getting very close to 'literary' fiction. The Dead Zone was the strangest experience of my rereading experiment thus far. It's the first book that is totally different to my memories of it; to the point where I even doubted that I had read it, and hadn't just watched the (admittedly excellent) David Cronenberg movie adaptation too much. I had read it, though – I still have the original copy to prove it – but it had slipped from my mind almost completely

The book was the first of King's novels published by Viking Press in August 1979.

A few months later the adult is seriously injured while jump starting a car battery.
There are better King books. The Bottom Line: Great for a Stephen King fan. Great for someone who is interested in the premise. Great for someone looking for an easy, relatable read. However, this novel treats death and relationships (past and present) with an interesting spin due to the supernatural and psychological premise. This book is not as scary as it is intense, not as horrific as it is the kind of book to stick a block of dread in the middle of your stomach, page per page. Literary Merit: None. This is a genre novel, by an author at the top of his genre.
